Completed in 2020, One Braham, designed by Wilkinson Eyre, delivers 18 storeys of Grade A office accommodation aimed at tech, telecoms and media clients. Located in Aldgate, bordering the eastern fringe of the City of London, One Braham is also the new flagship home of BT’s global headquarters.
The 20,000m2 fully glazed unitised façade, installed by Focchi Spa combines AGC Stopray Vision 50 and Stopray Smart energy efficient coatings together with vertical brise-soleil to the east, south and west facades. The glass types were carefully specified to allow maximum natural light to penetrate the interior spaces whilst also combatting solar heat gain during warmer months and guaranteeing thermal comfort during colder weather.
The building achieves BREEAM Excellent status, a Wired Score Platinum, and is an exemplar of how great design can create high-quality, flexible workspaces to foster employee wellbeing, collaboration, and productivity.
